I'm not trying to defend ScarJo specifically, but you know that being a Zionist doesn't automatically make someone a monster right? It just means they believe that the Jews have a right to self-determination, lots of Zionists favor a two-state scenario and hate what the current govt. of Israel is doing. And you're pretty good about avoiding this but there's a tendency on Tumblr to demonize anyone who implies that hey, maybe not all Israelis are baby-eating demons.

Oh, jeez, yeah. I’m fine with Zionism in like a solidarity/self-determination way? But not a carrying-out-genocide way or a forcibly-injecting-immigrants-with-Depo-Provera way. Is there a better post I can reblog that doesn’t use the word Zionist? 

No, the A stands for allies. Just because you don’t have sex doesn’t mean you’re queer.

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

I CAN’T WAIT

So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.

Imagine if in The Avengers 2, at one point Steve is surrounded by enemies, and so are all the other avengers and it’s clear to Steve that he’s not gonna be walking away from this.

All of a sudden, they all start falling around him faster than any of them can realize what’s going on.

Here’s the shotguns used tonight. Lots of restraint shown:

Summary of the night (August 18th, 2014):

There were many arrests throughout the night. Water bottles and other objects were thrown at police, and after gunshots rang out near the QuikTrip, police began firing smoke and gas indiscriminately. There have been reports of white anarchist agitators from out of town, provoking police.

Many protesters ran, terrified, coughing. Journalists were caught in the gas: one canister rolled right under a photographer, who collapsed from it. Fires and bricks were used by residents to try and keep back police.

Police began clearing out the street, ordering anyone who wasn’t credentialed media to leave or be faced with arrest. When one reporter (who is livestreaming the events and has a camera on him) explained he lost his credentials while being fired at and showed his PRESS patch instead, officer told him “this doesn’t mean shit” while ripping the journalist’s PRESS patch off of his vest and throwing it to the ground.

Police formed two lines and began moving forward. A handful of protesters got caught between the lines, trapped but repeatedly told to get out. Among them, WaPo reporter Wesley Lowery reports that the entire neighbourhood has barriers and many people are unable to get home.

SWAT teams have begun doing tactical sweeps and media were ordered away.

Amnesty International was also on the ground tonight and were kicked out by police. Currently, AI is highly critical of the US.

There are still a few people trapped, it appears, including a few reporters, who are tweeting that they’re being mercilessly gassed:

And here’s an image of what it looks like when they fire gas:

Currently waiting for a presser from Captain Johnson, who was seen tonight attempting to keep peace with no helmet/mask/gear.

Seriously do these cops even know what they are fighting for anymore? Keeping the peace? Or are they just smacking around anybody not in a uniform?

White conservatives are constantly complaining about their constitutional rights being threatened, but I haven’t heard any conservative politician speak out against the Ferguson police force violating protesters’ 1st amendment right to peacefully protest. I guess the 1st amendment only applies to white people.

Oops.

Rand Paul (and his dad) don’t agree with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 because they value white racists’ freedom of expression over the civil rights of black people. I respect them for understanding that the militarization of police and our flawed judicial system are racist because they affect black people disproportionally over white people, but when you’re complaining about how awful it is that you can’t hang a “Whites Only” sign because it interferes with your personal choices, that’s fucking racist.

Another one of the state’s 551 new laws now in effect would grant an immediate divorce in domestic violence situations. New Orleans Senator JP Morrell says before today, even if you had tons of evidence that you were a victim of domestic violence, you’d still have to wait 6 months to a year before you get a divorce.

"That’s obviously problematic because until that divorce is granted, the abuser still has all the rights of a spouse," said Morrell.

Morrell says now if someone has reasonable proof that they’ve been abused and can show that in court, they will be able to divorce the abuser right away.

"Basically what you’d bring to a court to ask for a restraining order,” said Morrell. “Pictures, videos, threatening text messages.”

Morrell says also beginning today, abusers under a protective order are prohibited from possessing a firearm and those convicted of domestic abuse are banned from possessing a firearm for 10 years.

He says Louisiana is one of the leaders in the nation when it comes to domestic violence situations that end in death so one of the major goals of the 2014 session was to pass sweeping anti-domestic violence legislation.

"And just basically to give everyone, every possible chance to get out of those kinds of relationships and truly separate from those people for the good of BOTH parties," said Morrell.

One of the most insightful things I’ve ever read about eating disorders and body esteem in general was a comment on my blog a while ago that I regret being unable to find now. The writer was saying that most people think girls want to be skinny because of Hollywood and Vogue. This girl wanted to be skinny because she wanted to be a protagonist. She didn’t expose herself to mainstream fashion magazines or TV; she was interested in art films and books and indie music. But no matter how alternative the movie, the protagonist was almost always skinny. And wanting to be a protagonist means wanting to be someone, as most people do. Apparently, your story is only worth hearing, you’re only someone, if you’re skinny—it’s like, the blueprint of a human. Once that’s down, you’re allowed to be as interesting and protagonist-y as you want! Apparently. No matter how much people our age have been raised on girl power and believe in yourself and you are beautiful, ignoring the beauty standards of the culture we live in is close to impossible. And as this lady pointed out, these standards and expectations exist outside mainstream culture like reality TV and tabloids; they exist in punk and indie cultures, in “artsy” Tumblr cultures that are all about looking like a fairy, but only if you’re a skinny white girl.
